TEHRAN – Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei has said that unity is “the most important issue of the Muslim world.”
“Despite all plots, the future of the Islamic ummah will be bright and promising thanks to unity, awareness, and the Islamic Awakening,” Ayatollah Khamenei said on Sunday during a meeting with a number of Iranian officials and Muslim scholars, thinkers, and religious figures who had participated in the 27th International Islamic Unity Conference in Tehran on Friday and Saturday.
The main plot of the hegemonistic powers is to create division among Muslims, he said, adding that the enemies of Islam are provoking civil wars and division and promoting extremism in the region in order to divert the Islamic ummah’s attention away from the Palestinian issue.
Elsewhere in his remarks, the Leader said that Takfiri groups pose a serious threat to the Muslim world and advised Islamic countries to remain vigilant about the threat.
Takfiris are people who believe that only their interpretation of Islam is correct, and all other Muslims are unbelievers.
“Unfortunately, certain Islamic governments are not aware of the consequences of supporting this current and do not know that this fire will engulf all of them,” he said.
